Where Vaccinated Americans Can Travel

Beyond ‘you can come, but there’s a quarantine’, we are looking at places where entry is easier for those who have received a vaccination against COVID-19.

Final Thoughts

As more people begin to travel, vaccinated Americans can travel to a decent number of places without restrictions. I suspect the trend of eased restrictions for those who can prove they got vaccinated will continue. The list will grow in the coming weeks, as well. Some places waive quarantine restrictions or testing restrictions–even both. As more countries ease their border restrictions or when things change, we will update this list.

  1. What countries unvaccinated travelers can go to? I know Mexico fly there and for the return make the land crossing to avoid corona testing in Tijuana.

    • For that, you’ll have to sort of work backwards. You can cross off destinations in our list that say you can’t go there without a vaccine. And you could take our list of “skip the test if you’re vaccinated” to understand that you could go there but need to do a test first. There’s also this site, which is hand – https://www.united.com/en/us/timatic?i=TIMATIC type in where you’re thinking about going. This is the software airlines use when you check in, to see if you need a visa, what documents you need, etc. It’s not a list, but you can check exact, specific details when you have a destination in mind.

  2. At the risk of being perceived as a glass half empty person I will say that I will not be dedicating any money towards travel until this insanity has stopped. The US is a beautiful country with many places to see and I don’t understand why people would subject themselves to all of the scrutiny, rules and regulations to go to another country. To be clear I love to travel and have traveled the world but, not again until the insanity stops.

  3. Ok, thanks. The headline says this is a list of where Americans can go or expect to go soon. But thanks for the clarification. Are people supposed to just show thieR vaccination cards at immigration for all these countries, or is more proof required. These cards are pretty skimpy.

    • Bob – Since DR is wide open to everyone and no tests or quarantine are required with or without vaccination, that’s why it wasn’t included. This list purely covers places where requirements are waived if you’re vaccinated. In DR, there’s nothing to be waived.

    • Good question. It’s separate, but if you’re vaccinated you can skip the testing/there’s no quarantine. I added it to the article with a link to forms you must fill out.

        • I had them add it to my international yellow vaccine book. If I start planning any trips to Europe, I’ll have to look into the digital certificate system. Those CDC papers look very…not legitimate.

  4. OK, that’s great. you are allowed to enter Germany but you have to self-isolate for 10 days (home quarantine). A a test/ proof of vaxx/ proof of recovery CAN exempt you from the obligation to quarantine. LOL.
    Meanwhile in Germany: you can go to grocery stores and pharmacies, but if you want to buy, for instance a T-shirt at a clothing store, you have to have an appointment(!), and carry around a negative test, a proof of vaccinate. No restaurants and such.
    I cannot go to a restaurant / store with a shot record in my town that I hardly left in the last 15 month, but overseas visitors can come here. Allrighty then

  5. Wow. Lots of people not really reading the article fully before jumping in to tell you what you forgot. Must be aggravating to have to keep repeating what’s plainly state in the article. Really people, read and comprehend before commenting.

  6. best to avoid the places with the draconian bribery measures, stay free ,travel to and spend your $$ where they and you are appreciated, the so-called “vaccine” which it is not, neither stops you from getting covid, nor does it prevent the spread of it, based on it’s experimental nature it very well could cause long term health issues which are not yet fully known nor understood

    • Yes we went in March ,no vaccine needed and most resorts will give you a free covid test and certificate to get back to the land of the not so free and the home of the not so brave as we used to be.

    • Tim–thanks for catching that. It applies to vaccinated people bypassing quarantine but still has other limits I didn’t catch.

        • Tim-the text for the Lithuania thing is long and confusing. The US embassy says you can get permission if you request it, and Lithuania says you can get permission if you request it, but neither says how likely that is. So it’s technically possible, and they have a huge section in their latest emergency law update about removing restrictions for those who are vaccinated. My reading is that it’s technically possible, but I have no idea how likely it is.

    • As stated, the article is about places that give easier entry conditions for vaccinated visitors. St. Kitts & Nevis has the same rules for everyone, so they don’t apply here.

    • As the article mentioned, it’s only about places that give easier admission to people with vaccines. Mexico is not that.
